Our understanding of food is confused after decades of building comfortable relationships with products packaged and sold as food but have very little food quality to them. These packages of food are marketed as the next quickest and most nutritional option for your families.
Like the packaged food thing, abundance has also become what we expect. We need lots. Lots of protein, lots of calcium, lots of fiber. Or do we? Does each person require the same amount?
The ease of the food, lack of real food, and abundance have led to some serious health problems in the U.S. So how much of a particular food do we really need?
Takeprotein. Close your eyes and imagine eating some protein. Perhaps your mind drifts toward a quarter pound hamburger, oozing with cheese and possibly bacon, and why not throw some chicken strips on top. There’s definitely protein here, but is it the best source, and do we need that much? Do we know what food is and what kinds we need?
I’ll touch on protein in the video, usually referring to steak, but your favorite burger or package-wrapped beef will do.
Remember, all of our bodies are different, so what’s too much for one person might not be for another, or what feels right to one person may be the exact wrong thing for someone else.
